    Hi Everyone

    Anyone got this? I've ordered it on my car in the hope it may be useful for when we have our dog in the boot.

    Is it simply a liner that you can turn over with carpet on one side and rubber on the other or does it also act like a load liner - ie have a flap that comes out so you can cover the bumper or rear of the back seats too?

    Thanks

    It's exactly as you say. I was disappointed with mine as it wouldn't protect from any spills and ended up buying another liner. It would probably be great for dogs though.

    I found it a bit cumbersome to start with, but its ok when you get it how you want it. I have the boot floor in the lower position, and the rubber side of the liner upwards. The flap is great for folding out and protecting the bumper while the dog jumps in and out ( if you've got them trained to Wait! while you unfurl it! ). Definitely protects the bumper and quality of the boot carpet.

    I also attach the dog lead to a lashing point to stop the little sod from jumping in over the back seats whilst wet & muddy!

    I was thinking of getting it for our new lil fella that joins us in December... But then again he's only small, and I wouldn't know what to do with the parcel shelf

    I'll probably get a car seat cover and one of those seatbelt harnesses for him

    See if towequip have an 8V version of the rubberised plastic liners they have for the 8P, as they're brilliant.

    I have many tools in the boot, heavy aswell as sharp & to date in 2 cars not ripped or damaged thus far, also has a nice raised sides for any spills that may occur, really are very good.

    I got the dealer to chuck in rubber mats and boot liner, the 8V3061160 is what he gave me.

    I would say it is a light load boot liner, waterproof and great for spills. I'm not sure how much protection it would give against heavy sharp items though as it is made out of a foam material and not as strong as the rubber floor mats he gave me.
    Fits really snug though and nice and light :)

    It won't sit flush with the floor in the lower position.

    Admittedly well used and not fitting in the lower position but yes, looks pretty poor.

    Hmmm, not really impressed by the look of that! I think I'll adjust my order to remove it but add on the accessory boot tray 8v4061180 and a pair of rubber front floor mats.

    Pity.

    Just out of interest though - does the car come with a hard boot floor too, ie does this sit on top or is it the boot floor? If I didn't cancel my order I'm just wondering if I could choose not to use the reversible bit and still have some kind of floor?

    The main advantage from my point of view, which this mat offers and the liners don't, is the flap which covers the bumper area. My last car got all scratched up from the dogs, and this really does stop that well. I also use a dog blanket type thing on top of this mat, which makes it look it a bit more comfy etc.

    The boot floor is a standard rigid carpeted surface like the brochures show. This mat is simply a piece of folded carpet with rubber on the reverse, with the fold out flap.
    As I say, I didn't like it at first, but got it how I want it, and it does its job. It just depends what you want it to do for you.

    That's correct, it needs the extra room for the diff etc ;)

    So can you remove the reversible mat and effectively be left with the standard boot covering?

    Yes. The mat is purely an additional, removable item.

    Thanks for the clarification Jeff - in that case I will leave it on my order as I can always just choose not to use it if needs be.

    Thank goodness for a forum eh!
